YIZIO, LLC - PRIVACY POLICY

Your privacy is significant to YIZIO. Here are a few of our fundamental principles:

We take the privacy and confidentiality of your data seriously and aim to make sure only the information you post on your data-control webpage is viewable by the public. We are thoughtful concerning the personal information we ask you to provide and the personal information that we collect about you through the operation of our services. We store personal information for only as long as we have a reason to keep it. We aim to make it as simple as possible for you to control what information you give us is shared publicly (or kept private), indexed by search engines, and permanently deleted. We help protect you from overreaching government demands for your personal information. We aim for full transparency on how we gather, use, and share your personal information. Below is YIZIO’s privacy policy, which incorporates and clarifies these principles.

 

WHO WE ARE AND WHAT THIS POLICY COVERS

This Privacy Policy applies to information that we collect about you when you use our website and any other services. Throughout this Privacy Policy, we’ll refer to our website, web app and other products and services collectively as “Services.” Below we explain how we collect, use, and share information about you, along with the choices that you have concerning that information. If you have any questions about this Privacy Policy, please contact us.

 

INFORMATION WE COLLECT

We only collect information about you if we have a reason to do so–for example, to communicate with you, or to make our services better. We collect information in three ways: if and when you provide information to us, automatically through operating our services, and from outside sources. Let’s go over the information that we collect.

 

INFORMATION YOU PROVIDE TO YIZIO

It’s probably no surprise that we collect information that you provide to us. The amount and type of information all depend on the context and how we use the information.

Transaction and Billing Information:

If you buy something from us (a one time or subscription purchase), for example, you will provide additional personal and payment information that is required to process the transaction such as your name, credit card information, and contact information.

Content Information:

Depending on which services you use, you may also provide us with information about you in the content of the images you upload. If you choose to publish these images publicly, anyone will have access to this information.

Communications with YIZIO:

You may also provide us information when you respond to surveys or communicate with us about a support question.

 

INFORMATION AUTOMATICALLY COLLECT BY YIZIO

There is some information that is corrected by us automatically.

Log Information:

Like most online service providers, we collect information that web browsers, mobile devices, and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, IP address, unique device identifiers, language preference, referring site, the date and time of access, operating system, and mobile network information. We also may collect log information when you use our services, for example, when you create or make changes to your webpage on YIZIO.

Usage Information:

We collect information about your usage of our Services. For example, we receive information about the actions that administrators and users perform on YIZIO. Activities log information such as who did what, when and to what task on our website was attempted or completed. We also collect information about what happens when you use our services (i.e., page views, searches, button clicks) along with information about your device (i.e., mobile screen size, the name of the cellular network, and mobile device manufacturer). We use this information to, for example, provide better service to you, as well as get insights on how our services are used.

Location Information:

We may determine the approximate location of your device from your IP address. We collect and use this information to, for example, calculate how many people visit our website from specific geographic regions.

Information about Cookies & Other Technologies:

A cookie is a string of information that our server stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides back to our website each time the visitor returns. Pixel tags (also called web beacons) are small blocks of code placed on websites and emails. YIZIO uses cookies and other technologies like pixel tags to help us identify and track visitors, usage, and access preferences for our services, as well as track and understand e-mail campaign effectiveness and to deliver targeted ads.

 

HOW WE USE INFORMATION

We use information about you as mentioned above and as follows:

  • To provide our services, for example, to set up and maintain your account, share helpful information, backup and restore your images, text and other data you provide or charge you for any of our paid services you approve.
  • To monitor and analyze trends and better understand how users interact with our services, which helps us improve our services and make them easier to use.
  • To monitor and protect the security of our services, detect and prevent fraudulent transactions and other illegal activities, fight spam, and protect the rights and property of YIZIO and others.
  • To communicate with you about offers and promotions offered by YIZIO and others we think will be of interest to you, solicit your feedback, or keep you up to date on YIZIO products and services.

SHARING INFORMATION; HOW WE SHARE INFORMATION

We do not sell our users’ private personal information. We share information about you in the limited circumstances spelled out below and with appropriate safeguards on your privacy.

Subsidiaries, Employees, and Independent Contractors:

We may disclose information about you to our subsidiaries, our employees, and individuals who are the independent contractors that need to know the information to help us provide our Services or to process the information on our behalf. We require our subsidiaries, employees, and independent contractors to follow this Privacy Policy for personal information that we share with them.

Third Party Vendors:

We may share information about you with third-party vendors who need to know information about you to provide their services to us. This group includes vendors that help us provide our services to you (like payment providers that process your credit and debit card information) and those that help us understand and enhance our services (like analytics providers). We require vendors to agree to privacy commitments before sharing information with them.

As Required by Law:

We may disclose information about you in response to a subpoena, court order, or other governmental requests.

To Protect Rights and Property:

We may disclose information about you when we believe in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of YIZIO, third parties, or the public at large. For example, if we have a good faith belief that there is an imminent danger of death or serious physical injury, we may disclose information related to the emergency without delay.

Business Transfers: In Connection With Any Merger:

The sale of company assets, the acquisition of all or portion of our business by another company, or in the unlikely event that YIZIO goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would likely be one of the assets that are transferred or acquired by a third party. If any of these events were to happen, this Privacy Policy would continue to apply to your information and the party receiving your data may continue to use your information, but only consistent with this Privacy Policy.

With Your Consent:

We may share and disclose information with your consent or at your direction. For example, we may share your information with third parties with which you authorize us to do so.

Aggregated and De-Identified Information:

We may share information that has been aggregated or reasonably de-identified so that the data could not be used to identify you. For instance, we may publish aggregate statistics about the use of our services.

Published Support Requests:

If you send us a request (for example, via a support email or one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish that request to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users.

INFORMATION SHARED PUBLICLY

Only the information that you choose to make public is disclosed publicly. You also can disable the sharing of your profile at any time.

SECURITY

While nothing online service is 100% secure (i.e. Google, Facebook, YIZIO), we work very hard to protect information about you against unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction, and take reasonable measures to do so.

CHOICES

You have several opportunities available when it comes to information about you:

Limit the Information that You Provide:

If you have an account with us, you can choose not to provide any optional account information, profile information, and transaction and billing information. Please keep in mind that if you do not provide this information, specific features of our services such as paying to remove “Key Promotions” and plan upgrades are not accessible.

Opt-Out of Electronic Communications:

You may opt out of receiving promotional messages from us. Just follow the instructions in those messages. If you decide to opt out of “promotional messages”, you may still receive other communications, like those about your account and legal notices.

Set Your Browser to Reject Cookies:

At this time, YIZIO does not respond to “do not track” signals across all of our services. However, you can usually choose to set your browser to remove or reject browser cookies before using YIZIO’s websites, with the drawback that specific features on the YIZIO website may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

TRANSFERRING INFORMATION

YIZIO is a worldwide service. By accessing or using the services or otherwise providing information to us, you consent to the processing, transfer, and storage of data in and to the U.S. and other countries, which may have rights and protections that are different from those in your home country.

THIRD PARTY SOFTWARE AND WEBSITES

If you would like to use third-party software with our services, please keep in mind that when you interact with them, you may provide information about yourself to those third parties. We don’t own or control these third parties, and they have their own rules about the collection, use, and sharing of information. You should review their terms and policies when installing and using third-party software.
